‘Distilled in Vermont’ virtual cocktail party and book discussion

Friday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m.— RUTLAND—Join for a virtual toast as Phoenix Books Rutland celebrates its 5th anniversary.

The celebration includes a discussion of “Distilled in Vermont” with author Chris Maggiolo and Erin Bell, head distiller at SILO Distillery.

Vermont is known as a center of contemporary craft food and beverage production, and the distilled spirits industry is no exception. From a handful of ambitious entrepreneurs a decade ago, the state now boasts more than 15 distilleries and growing. But getting a product from concept to glass involves more than just trial and error. The ingredients, production processes, and marketing techniques are as varied as the distilleries themselves. From SILO Distillery in Windsor to Stonecutter Spirits in Middlebury, each producer reveals its stories as it recounts the trials and tribulations of distilling in the Green Mountain State. Join author and distiller Chris Maggiolo as he reveals the unique and complex journey of taking a product idea to market in a state known for its innovation.
